Jose Mourinho's sacking by Chelsea is still fresh but it seems the Portuguese manager is keen to get back into the game as soon as possible. 

Mourinho and the Blues parted company on Thursday, after two-and-a-half years together that produced silverware in the Premier League and Capital One Cup.

Problems behind the scenes have cast a dark cloud over their title defence and the 52-year-old left the west London club just one point and two places above the bottom three.

But according to a statement released by the agency who represents him, Mourinho does not need a break and is 'already looking forward'.

Per the BBC, the statement read: "He will not be taking a sabbatical, he isn't tired, he doesn't need it. He is very positive and is already looking forward."

"He (Jose) will not be attending any high-profile games because he wants to discourage any speculation about his future.

"He will not be taking a sabbatical, he isn't tired, he doesn't need it."

"Jose will remain living in London and hopes he and his family will be given the opportunity to do this privately."

His dismissal has caused a lot of anger among Chelsea fans with sections of the support believing the blame should lie with high-profile players who failed to perform for Mourinho.

Despite the disastrous defence of their title, the Special One will always be remembered fondly having achieved so much in his two stints at Stamford Bridge. 

Three Premier League titles, three League Cups and an FA Cup mean Jose will be forever etched into the history of Chelsea Football Club.

But it's on to pastures new for the former Real Madrid boss. Following his first time with the Blues he went on to enjoy unrivalled success at Inter Milan, winning a historic treble.

There have been rumours suggesting he could make a shock return to the Bernabeu, however, Florentino Perez has moved quickly to dispel any suggestions that could happen.
